A welfare organisation given responsibility for the entire stray dog population of the city of Brasov is appealing for veterinary surgeons to help castrate dogs in its care to reduce aggressive behaviour.
 
Although Millions of Friends has taken over the killing station, many dogs are still kept in the cramped cages until the can be rehomed.On August 1 the welfare organisation Millions of Friends inherited the Brasov municipal pound – known as a “killing station” – and given the chance to show that the stray population can be controlled by mass sterilisation campaigns rather than culling.
 
The organisation, founded by Cristina and Roger Lapis, has been given until January 2012 to prove the system can work, before this fresh approach can be rolled-out nationally.
 
According to Millions of Friends, this is “a vital step towards positive change“, but the organisation needs all the support it can get to make this happen.
 
Specifically, due to the sheer number of animals involved, the organisation’s shelter facilities (situated on the outskirts of Brasov) are overcrowded. This means that, until they can be rehomed, many of the 350 rescued animals are still kept in cramped cages at the municipal pound out of necessity. As a result, fights between the dogs are common.

With this in mind, the association urgently needs vets to help castrate the aggressive males over the few coming weeks. If you can help, please email Deb Sewards at deb@hauserbears.com. All costs and flights will be covered by individual sponsors.
